Lake Baringo Club Hotel

Lake Baringo Club Hotel is located on the shores of Lake Baringo, 75 kms north of the equator, the hotel nestles amongst palm trees, green lawns and the clashing pinks, purples, reds and oranges of bougainvillea obviously thriving in the hot steamy days that characterize so many of the Rift's lakes. The chocolate lake laps gently at 26 acres of gardens whilst crocodiles bask and hippos snort their stories just 50 yards offshore.

But above all, Baringo is birds, birds and more birds. Over 460 species have been recorded here so it is no surprise that Baringo is the holiday vacation destination for bird watchers safaris and the highlight of the ornithology circuit of East Africa.

Rental is charged per hour; an hour trip being the norm for those who want to see hippo at close quarters, crocodile and the abundant lake birds. Keen bird watchers might wish to take a boat for two hours or more; they won't have far to go though as the shores of the lake are alive with feathered activity.

HOT SPRING TOUR: There are two hot springs in the area. A visit to the hot springs on a close by island takes two hours with plenty of bird, crocodile and hippo watching en route. Another colorful sight en route is one of Njemps fishermen off-loading nets full of tilapia, catfish, mudfish and bass while the village women and children sort them into size.

BIRD WATCHING / BIRD WALKS: There are two scheduled walks a day with a resident ornithologist.

GARDEN WALKS: This gentle walk is most rewarding for keen birders and novices alike. Lake birds and bush birds fill every tree and shrub.
